Prep for Trip

The team will have several meetings that will include prayer, country/culture overview information, travel prep, team building opportunities, in-country activity planning and our own mental/spiritual preparation for a trip like this. Attendance at the meetings is strongly encouraged for the greatest benefit of the team member and the team. As we approach the departure date, team meetings will become more frequent. There will be a debrief meeting when we return to the states.
